East Georgia State College is implementing a text messaging program to communicate with its students as efficiently as possible. This service will allow students to opt in to the program by texting a campus specific keyword to 40691. Once the student has opted in, he or she will receive updates and information from EGSC via text message.
According to Taylor Edenfield, assistant director of student life, “We intend to use this service to keep our students updated about important deadlines, campus events, dates to remember, etc. The text messaging allows us to get this information to our students almost instantly rather than waiting for them to check their e-mail.”
All current, new, and prospective students (plus all others who wish to receive EGSC information and updates) will need to opt in to the program using the following keywords:
Swainsboro Campus Keyword: EGSCSWAINS
Statesboro Campus Keyword: EGSCSTATES
Augusta Campus Keyword: EGSCAUG
